Despite the warm reception, official details about the new TVR are still practically nonexistent. Gordon Murray Design is partner on the project to do some of the engineering, while Cosworth is developing the front-mounted, naturally aspirated V8 to drive the rear wheels through a manual gearbox. More info should be released later this year.
Autocar has been able to discover a few other particulars details about the project. The chassis reportedly combines a tubular steel space frame with a few panels to add extra rigidity. A mostly composite body is being draped over that chassis with coupe and convertible versions planned. The layout should keep the TVR light, and the V8 is predicted to offer between 450 and 470 horsepower.
TVR eventually wants to add three more models to its lineup, but things are being kept small at the beginning. For now, the company is limiting production to right-hand-drive models for the UK. Left-hand drive and just maybe US exports would come later in the revival.
